The cygwin version of bzr has problems (attributed to a cygwin bug).  
Here's  a launchpad bug report regarding this bug: .  The native (non-cygwin) 
version of bzr works just fine.  Here's a trivial script to ease 
starting the non-cygwin bzr from the cygwin cmd line:
#! /bin/bash
"C:/Program Files/Bazaar/bzr.exe" "$@"
